About JERSEY - The RAF Centenary Silver Proof Five Pound Coin

This year marks the centenary of the Royal Air Force, arguably the most important military anniversary to be celebrated in British history. In fact, there are numerous official events and ceremonies planned up and down the UK to mark the occasion – including a service at Westminster Abbey with an RAF parade and flypast!

Now, to commemorate this historic landmark, a brand new Official RAF Centenary Silver Proof Five Pound Coin has just been issued - the ideal way to pay tribute to the Royal Air Force and the brave men and women, past and present, who have served over the last 100 years.

Officially approved by the Ministry Of Defence

Significantly this is the first British Isles Silver £5 coin to be released, to mark possibly the most important British military anniversary in our nation’s history that has been officially approved by the MOD.

This brand new coin issue has been expertly struck in Sterling Silver to a stunning Proof finish and the one-year-only reverse design features the official RAF logo above three aircraft specially selected to demonstrate the developments of the RAF over the last 100 years. The aircraft shown are the Sopwith Camel, Supermarine Spitfire and Lockheed Lightning II. Using modern minting techniques the aircraft have been engraved in incredible detail and printed in full colour.

Tiny Edition Limit

Your coin will also come displayed in a deluxe wooden presentation case with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity guaranteeing its place within the edition limit of just 2,500 coins. A tiny number when you consider the huge interest in military and aviation collectables – especially during such a special year for the Royal Air Force.

This really is the perfect heirloom to pass down to children and grandchildren to ensure the remarkable achievements of the RAF are never forgotten – secure yours now!
